'Stargate Atlantis' Movie Shelved 'Indefinitely'

Stargate Atlantis A planned big screen adaption of Stargate Atlantis has been shelved "indefinitely" following the cancellation of sci-fi TV show Stargate Universe earlier this month.

The series, a spin-off from popular 1994 film Stargate, will come to an end in the spring, and the axing of the show appears to have put plans for a movie on hold.

TV show Stargate Atlantis aired from 2004 to 2009.

In a post on his blog, executive producer Joe Mallozzi reveals, "I'm sorry to say, but the cancellation puts the brakes on whatever progress the SGA movie had made in the past month.

"Contrary to what some may think, the cancellation of SGU is very bad news for those looking forward to an Atlantis movie."
